to former congresswoman gabby giffords and leading the fight for gun control. we learned that gabby giffords will testify. i want to bring in managing editor of the grio. gabby dif fords tweeted, heading to senate for hearing on gun violence, thanks to senator leahy and chuck grassley for starting this conversation. i'm wondering if you think the voice of gabby gifford, she has an emotional story and she knows these folks. how influential can she be in this? >> she has tremendous moral authority on this issue as did the families from newtown. i think having people like her being a part of this conversation, it only adds to the pressure on republicans to give something. i think the only outcome that seems impossible is that absolutely nothing would be done. because you have a con fluance of events. you add the outrage of it happening to children, so i can't imagine that nothing would be done. >> we see wayne lapierre in that group of people. i think as i was giving this some thought this morning, because we've talked so much about why nothing changed after gabby giffords was shot. she sadly c
powerful, even riveting testimony from gabby giffords and her instruction to our committee, the judiciary committee and congress itself, to be bold, to be courageous, because america is counting on you. and the call to action that came from newtown is for better enforcement of existing laws but also new laws that will enable better enforcement. we can have common ground with mr. lapierre that better enforcement of existing laws is necessary, but that leads in my view inevitably for the call for more background checks on the 40% of all firearms purchases that right now are within the exemption of the gun show loophole and private sale and background checks on ammunition purchases. background checks, for example, and other sensible measures like stronger action against trafficking and straw purchases and including a ban on assault weapons are within the common ground that i think we ought to try to establish here. >> senator, for those just joining us, we have been keeping the coverage live going this morning of what's been taking place there on the hill with you and your colleagues. for th
. congresswoman gabby giffords showed unbelievable courage on capitol hill today. now we'll see if the cowards in congress have the character to do something about guns in this country. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> too many children are dying. we must do something. >> gabby giffords makes a surprise emotional plea, and the nra responds with nonsense. >> background checks will never be universal. >> you missed that point completely. >> tonight senator sheldon whitehouse on today's dramatic day of testimony. plus, dan gross of the brady campaign on the heroes fighting for gun safety and the villains who want to keep it the way it is. >>> the republican obsession with european austerity. kneecap the nation's economy. david cay johnston on today's troubling gdp report. >>> bobby jindal breaks his own rule. >> we've got to stop being the stupid party. >> find out how the poor in his state are about to start suffering on friday. >>> and brand-new polling proves again that we're living in a center-left country. tonight i'll tell you why it's up to one person to keep it that way. good
also hear, gabby giffords, his wife, the former congresswoman may also make a statement. what do you want to hear in there today? >> well i think we've all believed for a long time there is, there is something that can be done, particularly in the area of background checks. we want to make sure that the criminals don't have access to guns. and those who are not, in a mental state, to have guns, they shouldn't have them. there are things that we can do there to broaden background checks that currently happen. so i hope that that's where we can make some progress the. martha: you don't hear that much about the mental equation here. who is really pushing for that out there and making their their priority in this discussion? >> well, there have been talks about that. it's a difficult, difficult, nut to crack. it really is. but, i got to make some progress there. i think that is where, like i say, if you want to really impact gun violence, that's where you can make a difference. martha: all right. senator flake, thank you. you have a busy day ahead. we appreciate you being with us, sir. t
: very interesting. mark kelly and gabby giffords, his wife, they are both gun owners. kelly told me he considered joining the nra but he never got around to it. he also told me that when it comes to his testimony here, he's going to be sitting at one side of the witness table, wayne lapierre of the nra at the other. he hopes that they can have a conversation that can really start to do something. two staunch supporters of the second amendment, two very different views on guns. >> they're god-given freedoms. they belong to us. in the united states of america, as our birthright. no government gave them to us and no government can ever take them away. >> i defended the second amendment flying in combat over iraq and kuwait. you know, defending our country. gabby owns a gun, i own a gun, this really isn't only about the second amendment. >> reporter: these will be the star witnesses at congress's first hearing on guns since newtown. mark kelly, husband of former congresswoman gabby giffords who survived a gunshot through the head, six people died in the attack. the couple are gun owners th
at gabby giffords has super pac, michael bloomberg, mayor bloomberg has a super pac spending a lot of money. nra was not very effective they had a lot of losses of people they back in a big way. didn't win in congress. >> the president's approval ratings are higher than at any time since he was first elected. >> and the polls are with the president. but you make the most important point. nra has had this game all to themselves. they have been able to play it with no money in the game, on the side of people who wanted some sense of gun safety. now with people like gabby giffords, people who can attract funds and target them strategically i think the game is -- >> the president has the national -- we have more power than nra but i believe you were right from the standpoint and being a person who makes laws people should come to this table find out what they do agree on instead of politicizing it. it is a political issue. i think leaders should come together and stop the bipartisan -- with enyou have the nra saying we're against an assault weapons ban, against everything. to me the nra has bec
powerful on the floor when gabby giffords. you said there is preparation that takes place behind the scenes. this is something you can talk to no one else can. what does it take for her to get out there? what preparation is involved? >> for example, gabby had an opportunity to give her first speech about six weeks ago now to an organization of speech pathologists and professionals. it was a five-sentence speech. she had to memorize it. she was able to deliver it. she practiced it for me when i saw her in washington. she did a fantastic job. today you can see she knew it well enough to recite it and was also reading it for guidance. for her to get to that moment it takes a tremendous amount of rehearsal and practice. gabby has the courage. you can clearly see the resolve. i think it's really important to note. she's not just reading that statement in a rote way. you could hear the emotion and the power behind the statement she was making because she feels strongly about this. we have to make sure we deal with reducing gun violence in a responsible way. >> one thing dana mentioned was after t
. the hearing began with a very very dramatic moment when former congress woman gabby giffords came inest forted by the chairman, chuck grassley, and her husband, mark kelly. she was asked to give the very first words at the hearing before anybody else spoke. she did so only 72 words, very moving powerful and halting speech, because she still has a long way to go with her recovery. >> violence is a big problem. too many children are dying. too many children. we must do something. >> bill: it was all carefully laid out. she had obviously rehearsed it and it really does sound like a first grader right? reading aloud in the class. >> yeah, she had to relearn how to speak. >> bill: she looked these senator right in the eye and said, you know look we need you. >> you must act. be bold, be courageous. americans are counting on you. >> bill: seventy-two words every one counted for sure. then the chairman opened with his statement calling on everybody to be open-minded. try to come to some solution the high road, patrick leahy took, and then chuck grassley got up and he lit in
she was doing her job. even more dramatic, gabby giffords labored yet passion nal plea for passion. >> speaking is difficult but i need to say something important. violence is a big problem. too many children are dying. too many children. we must do something. be bold, be courageous, americans are counting on you. >> reporter: giffords is an advocate and so is her husband mark kelly. >> a strong supporter of the second amendment as anyone on this panel. my wife would not be sitting in this seat, she would not have been sitting here today if we had stronger background checks. >> reporter: at the other end of the table, the other star witness with a very different perspective. >> law-abiding gun owners will not accept blame for the acts of violent or deranged criminals: none of it makes any sense in the real world. >> mr. lapierre, that's the point. the criminals won't go to purchase the guns because there will be a background check. we'll start them from the original purchase. you missed that point completely. and i think it's basic. >> senator, i think you -- >> order. >> reporter:
police roll out a plan to combat the problem. plus, we hear gabby giffords' emotional call for gun control. that's coming up.

difficult it will be to get something through congress. a plea from former congresswoman gabby giffords who was shot in the head in 2011 during a shooting in arizona. >> speaking is difficult, but i need to say something important. violence is a big problem. too many children are dying. too many children. we must do something. >> reporter: president obama, who met with giffords tuesday, has promised action on the issue. >> we can't tolerate this anymore. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. >> reporter: putting forth proposals that include an assault weapons ban, a ban on high-capacity magazines and the measure that is seen as most likely to go somewhere, background checks on all gun purchases, including private sales by owners. but there is resistance from gun rights advocates. wayne lapierre, the head of the nra, says the federal government is not enforcing its existing gun laws effectively and the answer is not more gun laws. >> none of it makes any sense in the real world. >> mr. lapierre, that's the point. the criminals won't go to purchase the guns because there

of the senate judiciary hearing. we expect to hear from gabby giffords. luke russert and former mayor bob ehrlich. maryland republican, can you support these gun measures? national background check, something like that? >> national registry is a nonstarter obviously. >> what do you have -- back ground checks? >> i think a lot of reasonable people, second amendment folks would be willing to look at background checks but the rest of the stuff is silly. choosing some semiautomatics and leaving out others makes no sense. >> are you okay with assault weapons being banned as a political free vote, letting democrats who want to vote against a gun control bill do it so you get universal background checks? >> i'm not okay with it. i do think -- >> it's the realty that may happen. >> high capacity magazines, we can all joke about it but a month ago a little over a month ago there were kids killed with high capacity magazines. and the idea that everyone is fine with that is not true -- >> point is being used as a political strategy. >> i understand. i think we need to make progress. i'm all for -- >
